In the moments after the Hurricanes wrapped up the regular season with a decisive win over Pittsburgh, running back DeeJay Dallas, who scored twice in Miami’s 24-3 victory, couldn’t stop smiling. Dallas revealed immediately after the game that he had sought a different kind of help — from Miami’s new sports psychologist, Dr. Eric Goldstein, who joined the Hurricanes staff in August as part of UM’s new Performance, Health and Wellness Department.
